Microsoft tried to establish its Xbox One as a global platform when it initially launched the console in more countries than rival Sony's PlayStation 4 back in November.

Now in February, the move looks more and more like a desperate attempt to branch out to areas that were already permeated with PlayStation 4 fans. Ever since both consoles launched in November, Sony's PlayStation 4 has maintained an edge across American borders in popularity and sales at the same time.

To further solidify PlayStation's edge at this point, the news reports just continue to point towards more success for the PS4. Even this week it was reported that the latest game in the Tomb Raider was making a much bigger splash on the PS4 than its counterpart. 69 of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition next-gen edition sales were on PlaysSation 4 compared to only 31 percent for Xbox One, according to

Let's also not forget the most obvious reason why PS4 could have the edge at this point: The price. Rumors are suggesting that the Xbox One may be dropping in price at some point in the 2014 calendar year and that just might be necessary. It would provide a bump in sales and would align the console more evenly with the PS4, all while taking off some pressure of having to live up to an extra $100 price tag.

In addtion, the PlayStation 4 boasts twice the frame rate as the Xbox One does and also runs on 1080p visuals throughout the gaming experience.
